This wasn't my first attempt, but I hadn't actually tried it many times before.

I picked a Vampyre build since it seems like the perfect for this challenge (No need for ammo + another source of healing!), though my post Master trait picks were different (on AoB I'd get Finesse into Whizkid but with the limited inventory I just stocked up on more durability).

I had some close calls but I wasn't afraid to back out of things.

Things of note:
• I abused the ammo items early on (Shell Box + Shotgun, then Chaingun + Ammo Chain) until I got going with melee... Then held onto the Chaingun and an ammo chain for a while after just in case.
• I didn't get enough Agility mods to make tactical boots, but I was drowning in Technical so I eventually say "screw it!" and build some Grappling Boots to deal with knockback.
• Hell Level 6 generated a Staff-looking Unique but I had to pass it up since it was in a really bad spot. :(
• My Angelic Armor was in bad shape by the end but I had an Invulnerability Globe near the end so I used that to nuke the Spider Mastermind with the Nuclear BFG and popped the Lava Element against JC, who went down really quick!

Yeah, in addition to being my favourite Master trait overall, Vampyre is the clear trait of choice for AoLT, since it saves inventory space for both ammo and health.  :)  I am a little curious about why you started by getting two levels of Badass trait, though.  Seems like an odd choice that I can't imagine would have helped you much at the start of the game.

I'd seen some love for Ammochain in this challenge, but I'm still definitely on your side here. No need for ammo + extra healing beats less need for ammo and maybe keeping your distance, I'd think.

Well, not a question you asked but before I address yours I want to explain that I picked up Badass 2 because I needed to get the first level and another Trait anyway, plus it's handy in cases like grabbing a Supercharge Globe and the potential to fill yourself to 200% and keep it with Vampyre.

As for why I picked Badass before Brute & Berserker... I had all that nice ammo to blow and little desire to go around stabbing people initially, so I thought it would be more beneficial to pick my more "generalist" traits first and then shore up melee (since while they might not be super beneficial, Brute doesn't help at all unless I'm hitting people, though Berserker has defensive uses still).
